Summary: It is the day after New Years and Dale is en route back to Albany in a private jet with Emily Bullen. She is coming back home after turning states evidence on her husband Senator Thomas Bullen.
What no one factored in, not Sanctuary or the FBI, was the lengths Griffin Ryland would go to in the effort to protect himself.
Joseph finds out Dale is in trouble and it is only with the help of his team of SEALs that he can make sure Dale is safe and that Griffin Ryland can’t cause any more trouble.
A snowy New Years, a deserted airport and a hostage situation with people already dead and suddenly the worlds of Sanctuary and the SEALs collide, with terrifying consequences.
Then, two weeks alone at a resort, falling deeper in love leave the two men with decisions to make and suddenly there is the chance to make forever a possibility.
Review: The last we saw of Joseph and Dale was in The Only Easy Day where we were left hanging with a HFN on their relationship. This installment in the Sanctuary series is all about the two men. I enjoyed the way Ms Scott wove the romance around Dale’s taking Emily Bullen back from the west coast to turn state’s evidence against her husband the senator. The story gave action at the airport fighting Griffin and his men who tried to kill Emily Bullen and balanced it with a great romance. The sex was hot and well written. There was a perfect flow to the story and it was a nice, easy read. This book could be read as a stand alone in my opinion as it revolved around Dale and Joseph with Emily as a secondary evil character. I wanted to see Mrs. Bullen taken down being that she was really the brains behind the entire Bullen empire but the government wanted her testimony more. I liked that Joseph could be so open about his life when talking about career choices with his commanding officer. That Joseph and Dale were comfortable enough in their own skin to have the stuffed alligator showed the tender side to the two macho men. I missed seeing glances at how the rest of the Sanctuary gang was doing because the other books did that. This book is definitely worth reading just for its two tough main characters and the HEA ending.
